The team will travel to San Antonio in March 2015 to compete in the national finals. Notably, this is the first time in the department history that a team representing U-M has made it to the GeoWall nationals.

The competition consists of theoretical design, report writing, and construction of a reinforced earth system (GeoWall) during the national final. The team is sponsored by the U-M student chapter of Geo Institute. The team is advised by Assistant Professor Adda Athanasopoulos-Zekkos and consists of two graduate students (Athena Gkrizi, Xunchang Fei) and two senior undergraduate students (Joel Conzelmann, Rachel Thompson).

Congratulations to the team, CEE looks forward to cheering on GeoWall in nationals.
